1/1/2023 普天同慶 ~鍾立恆牧師

我知道, 我知道。上周是聖誕節。但這並不意味著耶穌不再是我們的喜樂。他是我們全年的快樂!我對這個新的一年充滿希望,它是愉快而明亮的。英文部 (TAC) 重啟事工領導層正在計劃一些偉大的方式讓我們成為明光並在我們的社區分享福音。我們鼓勵大家參與。


事實上,您可以通過以下方式提供幫助。這是為了整個教會。微笑!就像你即將要拍照一樣。真的,當您閱讀本文時,請像拍照一樣微笑。好的,現在稍微放鬆一下你的臉。好的。當我們在教堂時,讓我們有那張微笑的臉。讓我們的思想和內心保持這種態度和鎮定。尼希米對他的人民說:「……你們去吃肥美的,喝甘甜的,有不能預備的就分給他,因為今日是我們主的聖日。你們不要憂愁,因靠耶和華而得的喜樂是你們的力量!」(尼希米記 8:10)。這是事實,當時以色列人甚至不認識耶穌。但我們認識耶穌。因此,讓我們擁有我們的笑面,讓我們擁有我們的見證言語,讓我們的心充滿耶穌的喜樂。


我有時聽人說,把你的煩惱留在門口。我不同意。因為當我們走進信徒聚會的教堂時,我們正在進入一個充滿被聖靈引導的信徒的區域。這是我們可以讓聖靈減輕我們的煩惱和憂慮的地方 。否則,如果我們把煩惱留在門口,不把它們交給主來處理,我們就會在離開時把煩惱撿回來。


這意味著,帶著祈禱和代禱的心態來到教堂。準備好這樣做。我們不只是為自己做這件事。我們也為其他人這樣做。讓我們互相問候,無論是信徒還是未信徒,有什麼值得祈禱和歡喜的。然後,讓我們祈禱和歡喜。讓我們去做,不是因為我們「應該」,而是因為我們做到了並且想要做到。當我們一起邁入新的一年時,請接受這份祝福:「但願使人有盼望的神,因信將諸般的喜樂、平安充滿你們的心,使你們藉著聖靈的能力大有盼望。」 (羅馬書 15:13)。今年要被喜樂和聖靈充滿!

Joy To The World ~Pastor Benjamin Chung


I know. I know. Christmas was last week. But that doesn’t mean that Jesus is no longer our joy. He’s our joy all year round! I do have hope for this new year and it is cheery and bright. The TAC leadership is planning some great ways for us to be the light and share the gospel in our community. We encourage everyone to participate.


In fact, here’s how you can help. And this is for the entire Church. Smile! Like you’re about to take a picture. Really, smile like you are taking a picture as you read this. Ok, now relax your face just a little. Good. Let’s have that face when we are at church. Let’s have that attitude and composure in our minds and in our hearts. Nehemiah told the people to do as much when he said to his people, “… Go and celebrate with a feast of rich foods and sweet drinks, and share gifts of food with people who have nothing prepared. This is a sacred day before our Lord. Don’t be dejected and sad, for the joy of the Lord is your strength!” (Nehemiah 6:10 NLT). This is the truth, and the people of Israel didn’t even know Jesus at the time. But we do. So lets have our faces, lets have our words, let our heart be filled with the joy of Jesus.


I have heard people say at times, leave your troubles at the door. I disagree. For as we walk into the church, which is the congregation of believers, we are entering into an area that is filled with believers who are being led by the Holy Spirit. This is where we can have our troubles and concerns eased by the Holy Spirit. Otherwise, if we leave our troubles at the door and don’t give them to the LORD to handle, we’re going to pick our troubles right back up as we leave.


This means, come to church with the mindset of prayer and intercession. Come prepared to do this. And we don’t just do this for ourselves. We do this for others as well. Lets ask each other, believer or yet to be, what there is to pray and rejoice over. And then, let us pray and rejoice. Lets do, not because were “supposed to” but because we get to and want to. Please receive this blessing as we move together into the new year: “ I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in him. Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit” (Romans 15:13). Be filled with joy and the Holy Spirit this year!

你可知把耶穌帶到曠野的並非是撒旦嗎?路加福音第四章說:「耶穌被聖靈充滿,從約旦河回來,聖靈將他引到曠野,四十天受魔鬼的試探。」是聖靈領耶穌到那裡的!為什麼呢?因為到了那時候將發生一些事。而這些有迫切性、壓倒性、擠壓性、和有改進性的事之出現令耶穌啓動了祂的事工。你們當中有多少人知道耶穌在那試探之前並無行過神蹟或做過什麼著名的大事呢?這對我們今天來說究竟當中有著什麼的智慧呢……也許你發現自己現正處於考

作為信徒,我們被神呼召來講述真理、尋求真理和實踐真理。畢竟,耶穌說:「你們必曉得真理,真理必叫你們得以自由。」(約翰福音 8:32)。但誰才是真理?答案就是耶穌。在約翰福音 14 章 6 節,「耶穌說我就是道路、真理、生命;若不藉著我,沒有人能到父那裡去。」耶穌在每一方面都是真理的代表和化身。因為耶穌就是真理,祂也向我們實淺了如何尋求、講述和實踐真理的榜樣。 在寫給歌羅西教會的信中,保羅和提摩太熱

主耶穌在馬太福音 5:23-24節說:「所以,你在祭壇上獻禮物的時候,若想起弟兄向你懷怨,就把禮物留在壇前,先去同弟兄和好,然後來獻禮物。」換言之與人和睦相處比在教會事奉或敬拜奉獻更為重要。但是,如果我們的「鄰舍」真的對我們有意見,而我們認為是不合情理、怎麼辦呢?我們採取解決分歧之前,會忍讓到什麼程度呢? 在三日前的會員大會中,有一位弟兄提起馬太福音 18章,15-17 節是說:「倘若你的弟兄得罪
